Well here it is. Why is it that we stand in one place and then wonder why we are not moving forward? I believe I have done that with my whole life! I have never liked change and therefore adhere to status quo. For example, I have been in a 15 year relationship…no marriage, no kids. I suppose the cliche is true, you get faced with an illness and want to change your life. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining, just want more. I mean don’t we all? So I needed an ENTERVENTION, need to let adventure enter!
I think it all started when I was watching Pan Am (don’t laugh!). It seems silly, I know. But I was so drawn to the sense of adventure. It occurred to me, why can’t I have adventure in my life? I can, we all can! We just have to actually do something. The problem is, what is that something?
I decided it would be best to write about it, that’s adventurous, right? Ha, not exactly. But if I write about it, then I will be held more accountable. I cant just keep saying I am going to do things, I will have to actually do it! It will be in print, in black and white.
So granted I am sitting on my recliner with my laptop in my lap, which clearly screams adventure 🙂 but we all have to start somewhere. So first order of business is figuring out how to add adventure into my life one day at a time. Let’s keep in mind, funds are limited. I mean this is NOT an Eat, Pray Love story where I can just drop everything and fly to exotic locations in search of myself (don’t we all wish!). I just need to do more, see more, feel more. My mother passed away suddenly a year ago, my sister had brain surgery 2 years ago, I just had surgery for skin cancer a few weeks ago (which justifies the recliner given that im 36 and not 86)….so I am taking a deep breath and starting my new adventurous life. I am open to suggestions, please! And I am not looking to get crazy drastic, like bungee jumping and skydiving. I want to live life not risk it 🙂 The key is to add things to my life that make it more interesting, more fun, more full of…well, life! I don’t want to change it completely just add seasoning, one pinch at a time.
At least i took one step in starting the blog, I have been meaning to do that for some time, its a step, albeit a small one. Can I say that is my adventure for today? Is that lame? Well it will have to be. Maybe tomorrow I will blog dressed instead of in my sweats, what? baby steps I said! See you tomorrow….
